Designed by the revolutionary trail builder
Yuta Urashima

My goal is to make Fujimi Panorama MTB Park as one of the best trails in the world. I've designed this park to make bikers to feel that “even after spending 3 full days, there is still a lot more to discover in Fujimi Panorama MTB Park.”

Profile: In Austria and New Zealand, Urashima worked as a builder at one of the best trail construction companies in the world. He was the first Japanese trail crew at Crankwork held in New Zealand, 2017. After returning to Japan in 2017, he has been building trails all around Japan.
